Calling all cryptographers - there's a real-life mystery unfolding at Western University.

At least 15 hidden messages have been discovered at the school's D.B. Weldon Library, written entirely in symbols on standard printer paper, and concealed in plain-white envelopes tucked inside the pages of various books.

This is interesting and in my opinion a bit elaborate to be based off a video game.

The fact that they were found in books, usually between the same number pages suggests the books themselves might be the key to cracking the code. Since they were removed from the books if they didn't note which book they were found in it might make it impossible for them to be solved.

“The beauty of religious mania is that it has the power to explain everything. Once God (or Satan) is accepted as the first cause of everything which happens in the mortal world, nothing is left to chance …or change... logic can be happily tossed out the window. Religious mania is one of the few infallible ways of responding to the worlds vagaries, because it totally eliminates pure accident. To the true religious maniac, it’s ALL on purpose” – Stephen King, The Stand

We should get in on this. Everybody get a couple friends, invent a code, and start leaving messages. They don't even have to mean anything, just look mysterious. It would be a good followup to 8:00 PM April 5, 2014.

Was just reading up on this. It is interesting to me that here we have an ACTUAL mysterious event that is unsolved, and it is worth only one page, but Atlantis.... OH BOY! That's a 100 page minimum baby.

I would tend to agree this is a student, or former student, or even a professor. Maybe trying a stunt to show to themselves that they are just oh so smart. Every day that goes by this guy will think he's a winner. Though the truth, IMHO, is that actually just no body cares....

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

The symbols look like wingdings.

My gummy bear died. My unicorn ran away. My imaginary friend was kidnapped. The voices in my head won't talk to me. Oh No! I'm going sane.

Yes, it's very interesting. According to Weldon's blog pg, the symbols are not wingdings.

This will be very tough to decode, esp. if it's not in English. :yes:

Most all of the full-length lines on the notes contain either 14 or 15 characters, (symbols). :cry:

Also, w/ at least 40 different symbols it's most likely not a single symbol to a single letter translation.
